Fully rebuilt JAP 84S engine also available separately.

Re - Listed: For Sale 1966 Johnny Walker JW4 single seater racing car
16 February 2020

Johnny Walker JW4

For Sale 1966 Johnny Walker JW4 single seater racing car.
Johnny Walker first began producing racing cars in 1965 with his prototype Walker Type 65, the following year the JW4 Mk2 his first production racing car was released to the market at the 1966 Olympia Racing Car Show.


This particular 1966 red Johnny Walker JW4 has quite a comprehensive history of past owners and competition over the last 50 years and has probably one of the most complete histories of all the surviving JW4's of which more detail can be provided on request.


Having been recently restored it would originally have been fitted with a 250cc Villiers engine but is currently fitted with a 500cc single cylinder GM speedway engine and a Norton gearbox.
It is potentially eligible for historic sprint, hillclimb up to 600cc classes, HSCC Formula Junior (Class G7) and 500 Formula 3 circuit racing offering potential buyers a very affordable entry into historic Motorsport or to enjoy in a private collection.


This is a unique opportunity to own one of the last few remaining Johnny Walker JW4's and with a full history. With a guide price of £17,500, serious sensible offers are invited and prospective buyers are encouraged to contact me to discuss the car and for further details.


There are a number of spare parts available with the car.


The car is located in Bristol and is available for any inspection or provision of further photographic detail and shipping to any UK or overseas buyer.


For more information about the Johnny Walker JW4 and Formula IV please see http://www.jw4.co.uk

FJS 500cc F3 - FOR SALE - UPDATED
2 January 2020

For Sale - FJS   500cc F3

 

A unique car , made by Lucien Quadbach of Belgium, raced in the early 1950s , Topolino based.

 

Sold to Luca Dupanloup (1945-2000),a cartoonist, of TINTIN fame .Upon his death the original JAP engine had been removed for rebuild--it was never returned.

The history is not known but the nature of motor racing over this period was very local and informal and unlikely to be recorded.It is presumed to have run in France and Benelux ,there is a Swiss oil sticker on the engine cover.

The car is variously mentioned in the publication "Bibel Du Racer 500" and was at some time

 

The car was purchased in 2009 by a Formula Junior owner/driver and was at some time sent to the UK and offered to members of the 500 fraterinty

It lay in storage for a number of years ,and I purchased the car in 2017 , it appeared to have been prepared for display in a museum and could not be driven .

 

The car was supplied with a JAP 4B engine , the engine and Norton Laydown transmission have been overhauled and rebuilt by acknowledged tradesmen and enthusiasts .

The drive has been set up with the help of 500club members to give optimal performance with the 4B engine .

The carburettor is a Gardner 

 

The rebuild is almost completed , the car has a VIF #117.

 

My reason for the sale    following a knee operation and a subsequent foot operation ---I am 

not 100 % on the Stop and Go foot .

 

The car is on a trailer, with an unused spare wheel--and cover .The car has been stored undercover 

There is an as yet unused battery powered starter

 4 dollies to move the car around a workshop

there is a JAP sump for the engine with the outlet for an oil catch tank

 

Selling price   £9950    believe the car should be on the track !

 

The car is at Sissinghurst Kent
